A WOMAN has died two days after being involved in a car accident near Blakedown.

West Mercia Police are appealing for witnesses to the head-on collision which happened on Christmas Day on the A450 Worcester Road near Barnett Hill garden centre at about 2.40pm.

It involved a blue Ford Fiesta driven by a 41-year-old Malvern woman and a silver Ford Focus driven by a 26-year-old man from Bilston.

The Fiesta driver was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital where she was treated for a broken arm and bruising and discharged.

She collapsed and died at home on Friday. She has not yet been named.

A man and a woman who were passengers in the Focus were treated for bruising and seatbelt injuries. Both vehicles were badly damaged.

PC Billy Keys of West Mercia Police said: “A road death is a tragedy at any time of year, but it is especially difficult when it happens at Christmas, and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the woman who subsequently died.

“Given that this is now an investigation into a fatal collision, we are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact the Force Operations Support Unit at Rubery Police Station on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 265-s-251213.”
